    My passenger caused the accident

    I was involved in an accident in April, 2012. The passenger in my vehicle grabbed the steering wheel and caused us to run head on into the cement barrier. Should her insurance pay for the damages to my car and pay for my medical bills?

    Unfortunately, her insurance will not pay for an accident that you ultimately caused. If you were driving, you are the one in control of the vehicle, regardless of what your passengers do. You will have to use your insurance to cover the damage to your vehicle.
